Joe Little Chief was a Blackfoot (Siksika) from Cluny, Alberta. His Blackfoot name was Pe-ta-kis-kis-na-ma, meaning White Eagle. Although he had only a grade six education, he hoped to publish a record of Plains Indian life, and to this end put down on paper tales told by old people, accounts of ancient ceremonies, and stories of people, battles and events.
